Char Siew Chicken

I haven't posted food pics in a while... but I'll make an exception for this one.

Whenever we go to Sunrise Chinese Restaurant, the little boy loves the Chicken on a Stick - something he's picked up from his chicken-on-a-stick-loving aunt :)  I don't blame them. It really is super yummy.

I tried to make some at home one time, but it didn't turn out right at all.  The next time I tried, we used chicken thigh meat, used 2 packets of chinese bbq seasoning, and marinated it in the fridge for 3 days!

It turned out wonderfully, and I will probably try it with chicken breast the next time.

Who let the dogs out?!

So the boys and I went to Camp Barkeley the other day.  It was a good outing, and it helped the little boy get over the intimidation he felt over the overly rambunctious Jasper.

Jessie was tearing it up with the big boys,

but after a while, he was content to be all snuggly in the hub's arms.  ( No, the hubs didn't wear a groucho marx mask to the dog run. That is all me and the photobucket editing tool. :P )

It was great to see the little boy running around with Jasper, being a little bit cautious but getting over his fears by leaps and bounds. ( I'm almost sure there is an unintentional pun in there somewhere )

New Cousins for the Little Boy

My little sister just had her baby this evening ( well, technically speaking, "tomorrow morning their time"since she's in Malaysia ).

Welcome to the world, Aviya Rose :)

Also, Jaxon got to meet 2 other cousins ( 1st cousins once removed? ) when we went over to the Thornton's for Jet's birthday.

Ace and Tex were born on Valentine's Day, and were already about 2 or 3 weeks old when we saw them, but still the little boy was careful to be gentle around them :)
